High-Res Final Fantasy VIII Announced for PC

Posted on May 17, 2013 AT 06:19am

Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy VIII is set to get a PC release complete with a high-res graphical upgrade.

The game has currently only been slated for a Japanese release, with no release date set, but I’d expect a western release to be announced at a later date.

The publisher didn’t say whether it will contain any additional content, but I’d expect it to be a straight up port. Two images of this high-res upgrade have been released so far, one of Squall visiting the doctor and one and a battle.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
